Joe is a ginormous, white, huggable, cross-eyed dog owned by Nasty Nik. Nik does not deserve the love of a dog; he mistreats Joe and abandons him in the street. The kind Tuttle family rescue the scruffy polar bear bundle of fluff, with plenty of love, hugs and laughter they bring him back to health.
Joe shares with us his funny look on life;
'why does Mrs Tuttle pick up my poos? it is SO embarrassing, what does she do with all that poo?'
'why do the Tuttles changes their clothes every day, I have one white fur coat and it suits me just fine'.
Joe is the size of a lion with the bark of a mouse, he feels useless. The other dogs laugh at him, just like Nasty Nik used to do. His best friend, Mary Tuttle, gives him the love and courage to believe that one day he will be a super hero dog. When a burglar visits the Tuttle household ... will love mend Ginormous Joe's Broken Bark?

About the author;
Author Siobhan Cunningham, of Irish parents based in London writes thriller novels for film. As respite from the suspense of her books she produces the ‘Ginormous Joe Series’, with her artist daughter Scarlett Raven, based on a rescue Pyrenees Mountain Dog called Joe, who is close to their hearts.
Joe was found starved, manged, dying in the street. He had lost his voice and was unable to bark. His teeth were ground down from being chained and his bones and confidence had been knocked out of sync. He was ready to give up on life when the wonderful team at SPIN Rescue scooped him up and saved him. A percentage of sales will go to Dog Rescue groups allowing Joe to help others in need.
